New Leake Primary School




To provide our pupils with a mastery approach to Maths, which equips them with the confidence to tackle calculation, reasoning and problem solving skills in a real life context.


Power Maths

At New Leake School, we use Power Maths as a basis of our Maths lesson. This is an exciting class mastery approach, which has been recommended by the DfE, that works for every child.  It is based upon the concrete, pictorial and abstract approach. 

Every lesson is divided into sections that involve plenty of discovery, sharing, collaboration, practice and reflection. Children are encouraged to solve problems each day through the use of concrete resources, pictorial representations and abstract thinking.  

At the heart of this programme is the idea that all children can achieve and be successful mathematicians with the right growth mindset. 



As with all languages, we strive to develop our children's knowledge and skills with the universal tongue of number until fluency is achieved.  This is embodied by instant recall of arithmetical facts, the considered application of these into a myriad of contexts and the ability to move seamlessly between mathematical concepts.
